Genie Singh Posted September 26, 2011 Report Share Posted September 26, 2011 (edited) Well google have conducted an experiment in last 4 years, where they have scanned and digitised massive amounts of literature trying to scan all books from western English sources in which they created a computer program called ngrams which measured how popular a word is in a book in which you can see the cultural impact it has on something. You can access it here http://ngrams.googlelabs.com/ More on this experiment in the video below In addition please see this image in which I have shown what are the popular periods of sikh (sikhism) for which it captures certain time events. What is intresting is around the same time the same things are happening with other religions in some regions so social-economic reasoning behind them as well. Please have a look and comment on the trends we find and how we can predict futures http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikh_diaspora Edited September 26, 2011 by JatherdarSahib 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
